Episode 36: Tobi Newson

Photographer, model, and writer Tobi Newson joins the podcast to chat about witchcraft, sex work, and doing whatever she wants. Tobi is a former suicide girl, and in this episode we explore her journey from a conservative Mormon upbringing to her empowering experience as an alternative model.

Tobi shares what modeling is really like, what she’s learning by stepping behind the camera, and the censorship she experiences as a nude model and how that affects her business.

We also talk about different ways of monetization for artists, how Tobi supports herself while living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and the ways that chronic illness affects her hustle.
